A number of people have mentioned using "cvs status", but that tells you
the keyword expansion mode for the file in you working directory, which
may not be the same as the repository file (although it usually is).  To
find out how the file is actually stored in the repository, use "cvs
log" (with -h if you like) and look at the "keyword substitution": "kb"
is binary, anything else is text.
